I joined Takeda after separating from the U.S. Marine Corps as an assault amphibious vehicle crewchief and began as a Sales Representative. In my ten years here, I have moved up the ladder to the role of District Business Manager, leading a team of 15 sales representatives. I have worked hard to not only encourage sales growth, but also to grow our internal military community. Takeda has most importantly helped me within my transition from the military to a successful career within the civilian sector. Takeda always saw my military skills as assets, which helped propel me into various leadership positions within the company. In turn, Takeda also heavily invests in its employees, providing training and mentoring opportunities. I feel extremely fortunate to work in an organization where I can use my military skills and am also constantly acquiring new talents, and where I can share my military experiences and try to help pay it forward to other veteran employees.
